As we stumble into the beginning of yet another year, we are bombarded with list after list of what to look forward to in 2015 on our Facebook, Pinterest, and Tumblr accounts. I don’t even want to talk about it.
I am an anxious person who enjoys pop culture. So, when a new year comes along, instead of being excited about new TV shows and movies and books, I get upset, because I am now even further from all the things I have yet to watch and listen ... Read More

The season of love, giving, and unadulterated stress is upon us. You empty out your wallet and watch as the last piece of lint drift to the floor like a snowflake. In the background you can hear Bing Crosby crooning Christmas tunes, but there is no joy to be had in the land of poor college students and post-grads.
Before you sink to the floor with a notepad, tissues, and possibly some Kahlüa to figure out how you're going to buy Tiny Tim that gift, check ... Read More

A new social media platform is taking over this town, and her name is Pinterest.
In the past 6 months alone there have been 15 billion pins on Pinterest. The site is responsible for driving more internet traffic to publishers than Twitter, LinkedIn, Reddit, and Google + combined. Despite, all of the new hype surrounding the site- it is still not taken very seriously. Hmmm, could this have something to do with the fact that over 70% of all Pinterest ... Read More
Pinterest is all about sharing joyful images, and kittens are all about sharing sweet, tender love. There is one very special calico cat who lives across the street from my family’s house, and while she loves to run away and hop on our lawn for some treats and snuggles, my husband-to-be and I don’t get the curl up with her as much as we’d like. Sometimes a gal just needs some eye candy to get her through a day without kitty kisses, and luckily, ... Read More

When I was a kid, there was a woman in my neighborhood called The Nail Lady. I’m sure that she had a proper name, but to my five-year-old self, her epic and ever-present nail art eclipsed any of her other characteristics. Every time I ran into The Nail Lady on the way to the school bus, I took careful note of her inch-long acrylic tips, which were always decked out with a new design. And while The Nail Lady’s seasonal nails were fascinating to me as a ... Read More

Everyone hates Pinterest! News media from the Washington Post to Buzzfeed have been criticizing what Gawker called “the Mormon housewife’s image bookmarking service of choice," and all too often the criticism seems based on the fact that Pinterest is popular with women.
Last week, Buzzfeed published an article called “How Pinterest Is Killing Feminism,” arguing that Pinterest is anti-feminist because much of the content is made up of ... Read More

Everything's cooler when it's scaled down to a teeny tiny size. So it's only right and natural that someone decided to create adorable tiny foods for our viewing and playing pleasure.
These miniature meals are created by Re-Ment, a collection of artists in Japan that make teensy weensy models of food items and meals scaled down to 1/6 the normal size. They're now being sold online as Barbie Doll food, and called Puchi Petite. They also make little ... Read More

How many times have you come across a cute tutorial on Pinterest and thought to yourself, “Wow, that looks so easy! I’m totally going to try that!”—only to have it result in an atrocious stinking pile of failure? Personally, this happens more than my ego will let me admit. But now, thanks to the Pintester who spends her free time “fucking up Pinterest pins so you don’t have to,” there’s a way to tell which ... Read More
